Taco Tuesdays! We went in for tacos and the chips and salsa were off the hook. The salsa was spicy and fresh and the chips were not greasy and just excellent. I had two tacos, one chicken and the other beef and they were both good. The beef was a bit greasy but the chicken was spot on. The food... More

The Loop is always a busy place in the tourist town of Manitou. A good choice for Mexican food and the margaritas are excellent. The Mexican fare is good. I like the chilies and enchiladas. Be sure to get there early to avoid a wait.

We had lunch here today and ensuring was great; service, food, prices. The salsa is amazing and guacamole was delicious. It was a nice break from shopping in an open, light dining room. Highly recommend for couples or families.

While it is modest in appearance and with the chilled out staff, The Loop absolutely delivers!! The coconut shrimp appetizer should not be overlooked, fried to sweet perfection with a gorgeous Pico salsa on the side and that mango dipping sauce should be availble on tables everywhere!! For an entree you must try the volcanic, showy and delicious molcajete. A... More

Visiting from the Houston area and walked around town trying to figure out where to eat. Asked a few people, but most everyone else were tourists too and didn't know. We gambled and tried the Mexican restaurant as nothing else seemed to be agreeable to me and my traveling companion. No regrets! The food and menu is a bit different... More

Good Food and Margaritas, no Fired Ice Cream. It's like McDonalds being out of French Fries. It was a good visit but overall not great. I will visit a restaurant/ Mexican next time that has Fried Ice Cream a staple, disappointed!!!

We were actually visiting a restaurant across the street. There wasn't a line, but for some reason, they wouldn't pay attention to us, So, we left and saw The Loop. Ironically, there was a line to wait for a table, but the staff tried very hard to get us seated as soon as possible. The food was excellent and the... More

I can't believe I haven't stopped here before in my past trips to pikes peak. Great Tex mex style food! The street tacos were amazing and I can't wait to go back and try them again. The hostess was very professional and friendly....although only being 16 years old. The environment was really nice and warm and I believe they had... More
